    Web Services class not known in context

      This is probably a simple one, but I'm stuck.  I call a new Web Service, queryByObject, which could return several different objects.


      I have the below test case to return a User object.  If I change the method signature to return a User, it works.  If I leave it as an Object, I get 'javax.xml.bind.JAXBException: class pfcommon.data.User nor any of its super class is known to this context.'  Even with the XmlSeeAlso, it just won't add User into the schema.


      Any help really appreciated!  I put in all the components that I felt were relevant.  JBoss 5.1.0.


      Also, if there's anything else wrong in my style, happy to take comments, this is my first attempt at expanding my working EJBs to also be Web Services.






      @SOAPBinding(style = SOAPBinding.Style.DOCUMENT)
      public interface TestConnectionInterface {
           * Select back one value
          public Object queryForObject(String queryName, HashMap<String, Object> criteria);




      public interface TestConnectionInterfaceRemote extends TestConnectionInterface { }




      public class TestConnection implements TestConnectionInterfaceRemote, TestConnectionInterfaceLocal, TestConnectionInterface {
          public Object queryForObject(String queryName, HashMap<String, Object> criteria) {
              l.info("queryName=" + queryName);


              //Simplified sample of something that could happen here
              User ret = new User();


              l.info("queryForObject ret="+ret);
              return ret;




          public void testWebServiceTestConnectionQuery() throws Exception {
              boolean successfulTest = true;


              String endpointURI = "";


              try {
                  URL wsdlURL = new URL(endpointURI);
                  QName serviceName = new QName("http://connect.ejb.pf/", "TestConnectionService");


                  Service service = Service.create(wsdlURL, serviceName);
                  TestConnectionInterface tc = service.getPort(TestConnectionInterface.class);


                  HashMap<String, Object> filterCriteria = new HashMap<String, Object>();
                  filterCriteria.put("username", "bob");


                  l.info("Attempting to call dummy queryForObject method");
                  User ret = (User) tc.queryForObject(PFConsts.SELECT_USER_BY_ACTIVE, filterCriteria);
                  l.info("User = ["+ret+"]");
              } catch (Exception e) {
                  successfulTest = false;

          He Friends,


          I have the exact same problem. Unfortunately I haven't found any solution for that since the last 5 months. All of my application problems and issues have been solved but this problem is something like a tumor that have existed in every release just for one webservice. others work perfectly.


          I use webservice annotations on my ejb classes. It get error "[javax.xml.bind.JAXBException: class [myclass] nor any of its super class is known to this context.]" when  reaches to a method that returns a class that "myclass" is one of its members. I used "XmlSeeAlso{(myclass.class)}" on top of SIE class, Return type DTO class and every other place that I tought maybe help to solve. But all of them were unsuccessful and I have this problem yet.


          I am really appreciate that if anybody suggest any any any idea about that.


          I use jboss 5.1.0 ga(jdk6), JDK 1.6.0_17. windows 2003 server


          Best Regards,

            I found my problem. My relflectors didn't reflect some enitity classes to DTO and my webservices just use DTO classes.
